meineke. >>> you may recall last week's interview with senator lisa murkowski, who is going to run for re-election as a write-in candidate because she got beat in the republican primary by a tea party candidate. there hasn't been a successful write-in senate candidate since the run of the late senatorst m strom thurmond in the '50s. alaska is particularly rough terrain since state election law be spelled correctly and murkowski ain't smith. >> winning a write-in campaign is going to be tough. but don't you tell alaskans we can't do tough things. you don't think we can't fill in an oval and learn to spell lisa murkowski. we can figure this out. >> her campaign's hirst attempt to spell the candidate's way to victory was, let's call it, a-w-k-w-a-r-d. >> today we are going to learn how to vote for lisa murkowski. >> the title originally was vote m-u-r-k-o-w-s-k-i, helpfully at the bottom of the ad, viewers were invited to visit lisa m-u-r-k-w-s-k-i.com. oh, my. it's been corrected and redone, but not until after the blogasphere had a good laugh. the campaign is laughing too, but that may be
was 1954. the candidate was strom thurmond. now lisa murkowski is trying to duplicate. she is doing this from the state of alaska, where no write-in candidate has ever won. but the challenges of running a write-in campaign were not daunting enough, the republican party in washington is considering making things just that much harder for alaska's senior senator. tomorrow her fellow republicans in the senate are expected to vote on whether to punish senator murk cow by stripping her of her leadership position. jeff session already publicly lobbying it at politico.com today to have senator murkowski demoted and stripped of her senate power. so much for the whole collegiality of the senate thing. with the senate turning on her rather viciously, with the tea party groups ripping her to shreds saying the write-in campaign shows utter contempt for the people of alaska even as the same groups remote christine o'donnell after she lost in 2006, with the long odds she is facing and all the myriad craven enemies who would have thought that lisa murkowski would also have to put up with guff from
election news. a week after the primary, lisa murkowski is conceding in a close primary between her and sarah palin-backed challenger joe miller. >>> both the mosque story and the presidential address. a striking new polling numbers. "newsweek" did a survey, 7% of americans believe the president sympathizes with islamic fundamentalists. among republicans, however, the number's higher, 14% say that's definitely true. 38% say it's probably true that he sympathizes. 33% of republicans believe it's probably not true. 7% say it's definitely not true the president of the united states of america sympathize with islamic fundamentalists. let's bring in fareed zakaria, david gergen, former bush spokesman, ari fleischer and democratic strategist, paul begala. what do you make of this? couldn't the results be another way of people who don't like the president expressing disapproval or do you really think the numbers mean that the people -- the president of the united states supports sharia law? >> i think it's a republican thing, that's why i don't understand it. when you break it out by party
of alaska. an june set i -- an upset in ths too close to call. lisa murkowski was a strong favorite only days away from the vote now conceding to joe miller. a virtual unknown until he got the back from sarah palin at the midnight hour. that helped him win the race by less than 1,700 votes. >> i'm so proud of the campaign that we conducted. it was honest, it was upright, it was energetic, it was what a campaign in alaska should be. bill: how does joe miller feel about it, we wonder? his first national interview since the victory late last night will happen here in america's newsroom. joe miller is here next hour. martha: how he sees his nomination and what it means for the future of tea party politics coming up. we have a brand-new study that indicates a majority of new yorkers believe a proposed islamic center should not go up near ground zero. 71% of voters say the muslim group should voluntarily move its project elsewhere out of respect for the families of 9/11 victims. the same percentage of new yorkers say the attorney general should investigate the developer's finances. mayor bloom
craven enemies who would have thought that lisa murkowski would also have to put up with guff from her own campaign. a new online ad posted last night used the look of a 1950s-style psa to show how to cast a write-in vote. first fill in the bubble on the ballot and then write in her name and voting absentee, you put that in the mail. the goal was to show how easy it is to write in her name. the end of the ad rather undercut that message. >> write it in, and send it in. >> i'm lisa murkowski, and approved this message. >> the school children in the ad had no problem spelling lisa murkowski's name, but whoever produced the ad for her campaign clearly did, asking voters to visit lisa murkwksi.com. her campaign quickly fixed the ad, but not before someone actually registered lisa murkski.com telling people to vote for the official candidate joe miller. lisa murkowski's campaign is now laughing off the gaffe, arguing that people don't even have to spell her name properly on the ballot because the director of elections just has to determine a voter's intent in order to count a write-in ballo
it is united states senator lisa murkowski. three weeks ago was knocked out of the republican primary in alaska. moments from now we expect her to announce that she is now running for reelection as a write-in candidate. she was beat the primary by joe miller backed by governor palin and the tea party express. in minutes, joe miller is going on the record to respond to the latest political stunner that is rocking the nation. but first, former speaker of the house newt gingrich goes on the record. mr. speaker, nice to see you. >> great to be back with you. >> greta: these are wild times, am i wrong? >> unbelievable times. i've been active, i've studied politics since 1958. i became a volunteer in 1960 i don't remember any time where you had seven upsets in u.s. senate primaries. and the establishment candidate lost all seven. it is just amazing. you just watch around the country, who knows what november is going to be like. >> greta: i was thinking the last couple of days, democrats must be licking their chops. in the beginning they got hammered. hit at the town hall meetings. everyone was saying
wants. in alaska soon to be former senator lisa murkowski has decided not only is she not going to shake hands, she is not even going to quit playing. lisa murkowski lost in the republican primary to a tea party backed candidate named joe miller. lisa murkowski pointedly did not endorse mr. miller. now senator murkowski has told the associated press that despite losing that primary she is not a quitter and that she is, quote, still in this game. it appears senator murkowski is testing the idea of running against joe miller again. this time perhaps on the state's libertarian party line. supporters of senator murkowski reportedly met with officials from alaska's libertarian party over the weekend to ask about the possibility of her becoming the libertarian candidate. the libertarian chairman later telling the anchorage paper that senator murkowski might as well try to climb mount mckinley. get out the ice axes. the ap now reporting that alaska's current libertarian candidate sat down today with senator murkowski to talk things over. he sounds like he may be open to giving up his spot on th
've highlighted him in "national journal magazine." they deserve a lot of credit. host: how does lisa murkowski run against a candidate that appears qualified? guest: it will be a tough road. there has only been one candidate, strom thurmond, w2hho won on a write-in campaing. gn. lisa murkowski said, back then, strom thurmond it did it without the benefit of facebook, twitter, social media that are able to organize people. that is a really interesting idea, that a candidate might be able to build that kind of organization, to turn people out, educate them, and teach them how to spell murkowski right. i am not certain that lisa murkowski is the right candidate to test these kinds of outlets. you need to have a cult of personality. president obama showed during his campaign that he was able to engage the social media outlets because there was a cult of personality following of him. lisa murkowski is a centrist, somebody who talks about bringing a preparations back to alaska. i am not certain that is the right message. but it is a possibility in the future. host: she has $1 million in your war che

think republicans are now hurting? this is what has happened. lisa murkowski now wants to run as write-in, joe miller will join news a minute. charlie crist, another sore loser. mike castle won't endorse o'donnell, he's a sore loser. to what extent these republicans hurting republican chances? >> well, they are hurting. if i were christine o'donnell, i would say the establishment of the democratic and the republican party don'tlike me. i'm doing something right. the whole idea is that the tea party is cleansing the republican party even as it is helping empower it to victory. >> sean: and winning. >> that's right. i have a movie i just did with citizens united called battle for america. it is the closing argument for the election victory in the midterm elections. newt gingrich is in it, ann coulter is it, i'm all over it. takebackamericamovie.com and it will rile your liberal friends. >> sean: beckel is in the next room he's getting riled up now. i can see through the walls. >> coming up establishment gop senator goes only where one senator in the history of the united states has gone
to get his endorsement. would it mean a lot. >> sean: he said he would. if you look at lisa murkowski and a lot of other races, charlie crist, as an example, i'm almost calling it the sore loser syndrome. what is your take? >> i want to give him the benefit of the doubt. it is only a week since election day. let's give him time. hopefully he will come around. we need to unite the party especially in delaware to move forward. i'm still holding out for hope. >> sean: all right. more of the establishment tea party stuff in just a second. bill maher, friend of yours obviously. you did his show an lot, apparently. >> yeah, unfortunately. >> sean: he comes up with this tape, 1999 you made an appearance talking about a boyfriend when you were a teenager? >> right. >> sean: saying you dabbled into witchcraft. why don't you explain, what was that about? >> teenage rebellion. some dabble in drugs to rebel, that's how i rebelled. who didn't do some questionable things in high school and who don't regret the 80s to some extent? i certainly do. i most certainly regret bringing it up to bill maher.
and then a democrat, scott mcadams. lisa murkowski, this writing bid could be seen as a revenge of the moderates or the middle of the republican party strikes back. and certainly republicans didn't want to see this happen. alaska is still a republican-leaning state. but this is no longer the shoe-in that it was once seen once miller won that republican primary. >> all right. mark murray, deputy political director, we're going to play more from the value voter's summit later. thanks. >> the only u.s. senator to win via write-in is the infamous strom thurm man. so what she's attempting to do would be historic if she pulled it off. >>> all right. world leaders are in new york for the united nations general assembly. true to form, iranian president, ahmadinejad, is lashing out at the united states on the eve of his big speech. also in new york to cover this is ali. i've got to ask you, is this going to be one of the classic ahmadinejad goes off on america for 45 minutes, an hour, and folks in there have to sit there and roll their eyes while he does it? >> chuck, it would certainly follow the patter
